A report of a fight led the Sugar Land police to discover a kidnapping and a aggravated assault charge.
Saturday night, about 6 pm., Sugar Land police responded to the 7400 block of Newbury Trail in Telfair regarding a fight in progress. When police arrived on the scene they detained three individuals of Southeast Asian/Indian decent. As the investigation unfolded, police learned that one of the men had been taken by force as he was walking on Baldwin Crossing, a street also in the Telfair subdivision.
According to authorities, two men and a female forced the victim, under the threat of death, into a rental car and took him to an undisclosed location where he was assaulted, and his personal property, including house keys to his nearby home were taken. As police investigated, they found the female suspect still driving around the neighborhood in another rental car. When her car was searched, police discovered duct tape and the victim’s house keys.
All three suspects were taken to the Sugar Land police department for further investigation. According to authorities, the suspects had come from California and Canada to deal with the victim over allegations of fraud in a business. The three arrested were 46, 47, and 48 year old individuals; one from California and two Canadian citizens.
Sugar Land police contacted Homeland Security (I.C.E.) placing a hold on one of the Canadians who is wanted in that country. All three were charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault relating to the incident in Telfair.
